I finally scrapped and finished something

In a record time I might add :D You all know I'm a very slow scrapper, but I had it going on yesterday and finished a lo in 2 hours ... I only had the printer holding me back but finished it with a dummy photo and got that sorted this morning. I think it's so cute !

So that was my take on the Dutch Dare of today, all about dutch games, you can check out what the other girls did here.

Oh and I also made a quick card from Nancy's instructions, she rocks her cards and her tutorials are so fun to try. Thanks girl ! I had a bit of a deadline so it's not quite the same as her card, but close enough (there is bling on the tag but it blew over).

I forgot to show this lo here and only posted it on sistv .... I made it last month @ the sis crop and used my new 2nd hand typewriter that I bought on queensday.

Now I'm off to prepare more stuff for saturday, shout out if you're coming I have no idea who is coming besides the MLS team, Danielle and Monique LOL.

Back to Life

You might have wondered where I've been well all over the place I guess mostly just enjoying my 2,5 week vacation from work. And this was the first one I really had the feeling I had some time off as usually I'm working hard for MLS and didn't really have time to enjoy the vacation. And I still got lots done so that was great !

We went to the zoo, Delftse Hout, parties, mothersday, enjoyed time in our garden, lot's of peanutball games, purged the attic (again but this time DH's area), adopted some tadpoles (with thanks to Flo & Rutger) the boys are so enjoying them.

We also watched lots of DVD's we had lying around; didn't really enjoy Norbit, the matrix 3 or Blade 3 mixed feelings with snakes on a plane as I jumped up and moved the couch back 10 cm .... But I loved School of Rock, American Gangster, the chronicals of Riddick "yummy" (yes I'm sorry I think vin diesel is cute), 300 (wow) and xmen the last stand.

I started back to the gym again and running (very carefully) and even scrapping a little but having troubles getting things finished, starting is no problem but finishing a lo ......
Some photo's I really like from the holiday (wow it almost looks like the summer holiday doesn't it ?):

Right now we are preparing a party @ MLS , will give you a heads up on that over the weekend !

Did you have a good holiday ? Any movie/dvd tips ?

When the kids are away

Mom and Dad will play LOL.

Hope all the dutchies had a fun Queensday ? We sure did, we love a good hunt for bargains so we ventured out but DH did go without the helmet though... I bought the summercoat in the pic I last week when DH and I had a date night. I wanted to show it to you and we ended up making silly pics before going out hunting for .....
A new chessgame, 3 old games of go fish, a wicker circle to scrap, a campingmatras for my crunches (yep planning on getting on with my training schedule), a spool knittinset for the boys boys, an electric typewriter, a vintage rak with 6 mini bottles, a book for problemsolving by Pooh, a box for sowing materials of some sort for my beads, DH found a bunch of cool old 12" ie. Streetlife (Crusaders), You and Me (Spargo), Pass the Dutchie (Musical Youth), Why Can't we live together (Anthony ...) and one of Eddie Murphy's albums, and we couldn't go home without some yummy tompoucen (wikipedia translation in the link).
Oh and I got a massage on a chair 20 min. for 10 euro's (at the Tuinen, a shop that was open) I cannot even begin to tell you how good that was .... And some new nike's I spotted 2 weeks ago but still had them on my mind, so I went and got them, cute no ?
